Notes-
The clubs named are only the clubs with whom the player was playing when capped.
I know Bo’ness is a contentious issue, it wasn’t part of the district until 1975, and it is in every way, except officially, part of West Lothian, but if I didn’t who in their right mind would…….
Apart from Jonny Moscardini [Italy] all the above players represented Scotland.
Matches underlined indicate that the player scored in that match,
